The new T and C carries my feature about greyhounds – gloriously illustrated, they really are insanely beautiful dogs. Alongside (and most importantly) is a truly lovely piece by deputy editor Lydia Slater, who adopted a ‘retired’ ie unwanted greyhound and describes the joys of ownership. If only I lived somewhere with space for one, or preferably ten… But we hope that some kind readers will be inspired to take a greyhound into their homes. I feel quite sure that they will.
Retired Greyhound Trust also do very good Christmas cards.
I heard this horror story on Woman’s Hour this morning – here’s the petition. Almost 42,000 signatures just now…
This is about halal slaughter. I’m too cowardly to watch the clip. Whatever you think about halal (I’m a vegan, so you can probably guess what I think) this abattoir was referred to the Food Standards Agency, which was investigating its treatment of animals; but it has now – apparently – simply changed its name and is continuing to operate in the same manner. Hillside are asking people to protest to the FSA, which I’m about to do…
I know that there are so many charities in desperate need of our money. But one has to choose – and Hillside is so hands-on and noble!

Thrilled that THE SIX is here. My thanks to the great Lena Dunham and Jennifer Konner…
